What is the difference between Argb and RGB?

Does RGB work with Argb?

Compatibility. RGB devices are compatible with 12V headers that have 4-pins and are present in many motherboards nowadays. In fact, more motherboards have 12V 4-pin RGB headers than the newer aRGB headers due to their lower cost. RGB 12V devices are NOT backward or forwards compatible with the 5V aRGB headers.

What is ARGB lighting?

An ARGB, or Addressable RGB, header (usually a 5V 3-pin connector) supports devices equipped with an IC (Integrated Circuit, also sometimes referred to as a microchip) to provide much better flexibility with regards to lighting options.

Are all ARGB compatible?

And yes, different mobo makers provide different software tools to control their ARGB headers, but as long as the header's pin configuration matches what is on your fans' cables, they all will work. And your fans do come with the most common ARGB connector type.

Where do you plug in ARGB?

The CHA_FAN or SYS_FAN header uses a different temp sensor on the mobo to guide its case ventilation fans. So, a Hub for case fans REALLY should be plugged into the CHA_FAN or SYS_FAN header. Any mobo fan header can accept the speed signal sent back to it from only ONE fan.

How many pins is Argb?

ARGB has 3 pins but some motherboards, eg Gigabyte, have 4 pins connectors with one pin missing.

Do I need to plug in Argb?

Yes, you must plug them into the correct mobo port. That port provides BOTH power for the lights and control of their patterns. Not plugged in = no display at all.

How many pins is ARGB?

ARGB has 3 pins but some motherboards, eg Gigabyte, have 4 pins connectors with one pin missing.

Can I connect RGB fans to Argb header?

Yes, you can do exactly that. I have to assume the one light strip on the ARGB header is ARGB, and the two new BitFenix fans you cite are also ARGB type. Connecting the lighting portions of those three items to a single ARGB mobo header is normally well within the header's power limits, so no problem.

What is VDG 3 pin?

The VDG is for some of the Gigabyte and Aorus motherboards that only used the 3 pin connection. other brands all used the 4 pin connector and Gigabyte swapped to that style on the more recent boards. You need to use the same connector that it shows for other brands that uses the 4 pin connector with 1 pin missing.

What is addressable ARGB?

An ARGB, or Addressable RGB, header (usually a 5V 3-pin connector) supports devices equipped with an IC (Integrated Circuit, also sometimes referred to as a microchip) to provide much better flexibility with regards to lighting options.

Can I connect a 3 pin ARGB to 4 pin?

The 3 pin RGB are 5 volt and 4 pin are 12 volt. But yes you can still run the fans without the lights. They make some adapters to run 5 volt off a SATA power connector.
